South Precinct Officer Nathan Silvers submitted his resignation Monday from the Metropolitan Police Department effective after he serves a 30-day suspension, the department announced in a press release.
Silvers, 33, who graduated from the police academy last November, reported late for work Friday night in uniform, armed and apparently drunk, the release read.

He was charged Saturday with DUI (for driving his personal vehicle to work while allegedly intoxicated), unlawful gun possession while under the influence of alcohol, and violation of the implied consent law for refusing to submit to a blood alcohol test.

Field Supervising Captain Kenny Dyer submitted his notice of retirement on Monday to be effective after he serves a 30-day suspension. Dyer, a 26-year Metro Police veteran who was promoted to captain on March 1, responded to the South Precinct Friday night and consulted with Silvers sergeant, Terrence Bradley. The decision was made to decommission Silvers and drive him to his Hendersonville home. Neither Chief Steve Anderson nor the deputy chiefs were made aware. After learning of this matter at 5:30 a.m. Saturday, Anderson ordered an immediate investigation of Silvers, which was conducted by the police departments DUI Unit.

Anderson also ordered the immediate decommissioning of Dyer and Bradley. Disciplinary action against Bradley is pending.
